Welcome to the Scrambled Up World Of Work.

Times are changing…fast. Traditional working practices and the concept of a conventional job are increasingly becoming things of the past as we struggle to make sense of a new marketplace where the only limit to success is your own imagination. This is a world of no rules and no walls. Traditional trading barriers are down; the concept of bricks & mortar companies where employees go to work 9-5 is crumbling. The challenges – and the opportunities – for the entrepreneur-within are huge. For micro-businesses, home-workers, freelancers, it’s all for the taking.

Being self employed is not just about having good ideas; it’s about being enterprising, innovative and actually - making it up as you go along. The thought of running your own business can be both scary and exhilarating. If you’re stuck in a rut and bored working in a dead-end job, it’s easy to think that working for yourself is the answer to your prayers. But it’s not that simple.

Working for yourself can be a liberating experience, reinvigorating your life with a new energy. But it can be lonely at times. What are the pitfalls? What are the upsides? And, what about the really important stuff - who’s going to make the tea?

My new book “Leap!” is a stimulus for taking the plunge to work for yourself, giving inspiration, ideas and anecdotes on how to succeed in the scrambled up world of the New Entrepreneur.
